Adding XRP as one of the base currencies
While a lot of crypto exchanges offered XRP trading pairs to their customers following its spike in price — when the token briefly surpassed Ethereum by market capitalization — CoinField claims to have been the first exchange to offer XRP as one of its base currencies, enabling the traders to pair XRP with over 30 different crypto and fiat currencies on its platform.
CoinField CEO Babak Bob Ras said in a press release: “In a very short amount of time, XRP has proven itself to be one of the most reliable and most cost-efficient blockchain networks in the industry. By adding XRP as a base currency in all trading pairs, our users can move funds in and out of different exchanges or different wallets in a matter of seconds. We are directly benefiting our users with a stable, proven base.”
The platform also listed Stellar Lumens as an XRP-based trading pair on its platform, along with direct fiat trading pairs with the U.S. dollar, Canadian dollar and euro. The exchange announced the addition of the USD Coin (USDC) stablecoin in December as a safeguard for investors."
